The Cause announces first acts for Seaside Beano festival 2022

Featuring Or:la, Helena Hauff, Objekt, Overmono and many more


The Cause has revealed the first acts to play its inaugural Seaside Beano festival.

The former North London club - which bid farewell with an unforgettable night on New Year's Day - will host sets by the likes of Or:la, Helena Hauff, Objekt, Goldie b2b DJ Bone, Octave One (Live) Overmono and Ben Sims at Pontins Camber Sands Holiday Park across 20th-23rd May. 

Asquith, Cera Khin, Byron Yeates, Paramida, Tama Sumo b2b Lakuti, Tasha, Chippy Nonstop, object blue and Pangaea are also among the names set to perform. See the first line-up announcement in full below.

According to organisers, the festival site will be "transformed into a rave maze" akin to its former Ashley Road home. Aside from three days and nighits of music, there will be pool parties, drag performances, crazy golf and more. 

In a statement, The Cause co-founder Eugene Wild said: "With the over-commercialisation of festivals in recent years, we have taken a real back-to-basics site."

Last month, a recording of The Cause's final party on Ashley Road was released. Launched back in 2018, the grassroots arts and event space - which initially announced its impending closure in September last year - bowed out following a final series of parties. The venue is currently looking for a new permanent home.
